[texts]As Dificuldades do Anti-Etnocentrismo - Simon Schwartzman
Comentário ao artigo de Howard J. Wiarda, "Por uma teoria não etnocêntrica do desenvolvimento: as concepções alternativas do Terceiro Mundo", Dados, vol. 25, 2, 229-252, 1982; publicado em Dados, vol. 25, 2, 253-254, 1982. A verdadeira dificuldade da aplicação das teorias do desenvolvimento para os países não-ocidentais não é, como diz Wiarda, o de "levar a sério" suas instituições e peculiaridades culturais (isto pode no máximo ser o problema de alguns setores mais míopes do Dep...

[movies]Relativism - H.C. Felder
We live in a society which teaches that everything is relative, particularly truth. But how can everything be relative to something else? At some point there needs to be a absolute standard by which to judge all other things. This is known as the absolute truth and even denying it forces you to affirm it. In this episode of Giving An Aswer, H.C. Felder will interview Shawn Hayes on the topic of Relativism.

[audio]A Technology Fast - Mark Hughes
In our scripture text, Paul exhorts us to âBe not conformed to the worldâ. Bro. Hughes observes that some in the religious world are touting a doctrine of âCultural Relativismâ This misguided theory would have our standards changing based upon what the world dictates. Paul tells us that the oposite is true, that we should hold ourselves apart from the world. There should be something about us that the world can recognize that we are sons and daughters of God...

[texts]Moral Philosophy through the Ages - James Fieser
Introductory ethics textbook. This book takes a middle ground between the topical and historical approaches to Western ethics. The chapters are topically arranged, but preserve the flow of history in two ways. First, each chapter explains the historical development of the topic under consideration. Second, most chapters focus on a specific famous philosopher who championed a particular tradition, such as Aristotle, Locke, or Kant, and the chapters are chronologically ordered based on when these ...

[texts]A critique of Ken Wilber and his integral method - Morten Tolboll
Ken Wilber has sought to bring together the world´s far-ranging spiritual teachings, philosophies, and scientific truths into one coherent and all-embracing vision. In this article I show how Ken Wilber´s integral method belongs to a group of large New Age systems, which have emerged in the wake of Theosophy, and which therefore exposes totalitarian and fascistic tendencies.

[texts]Why War? - Nigel B. Cook
Cyril Joad's 1939 "Why War" propaganda book. Joad led the infamous 1933 Oxford Union argument for the motion "This country will not fight for King and Country", which sent dictators everywhere the message that Britain was turning pacifist and weak. Joad simply "ridiculed" all of Winston Churchill's sincere warnings about Hitler's racist Nazis as being exaggerations, and claimed that we could peacefully defeat the Nazis for surrendering and then using non-violent resistance (such people were simp...

This mythology has two world images: humanistic psychology and constructivism.

[texts]Quantum mechanics and the philosophy of Niels Bohr - Morten Tolboll
I have in my book Dream Yoga looked at the abuses of quantum mechanics, which we see so widely-spread in New Age circles, and wherein the misinterpretation consists. However there has right now been published a new book by my professor in philosophy, David Favrholdt, about the philosophy of Niels Bohr, which shows the misinterpretation in a new way. This article gives an introduction to this philosophy.

[texts]Quantum mysticism and its web of lies - Morten Tolboll
Quantum mysticism is a pseudoscientific version of quantum mechanics. In this article I show the two central misinterpretations of quantum mechanics that have created a widespread web of lies, both in the postmodern intellectualism, as well as in the more popular movement of New Age. I also give examples on how the quantum mystical language of postmodern intellectualism has influenced New Age, for example in the New Age guru Deepak Chopra.

[texts]The pseudoscience of reductionism and the problem of mind - Morten Tolboll
The reductionisms observe Man from fragmented viewpoints, for example as organism, as physical-chemical system, as society being, as psyche, as producer and user of language and meaning. But what becomes of the wholeness? What unites all this knowledge to a total image of Man? The reductionisms´ explanations of this always end up as philosophical shipwrecks. Reductionisms are philosophical viewpoints, which under cover of being science seek to answer the question of Man, or reality as such...

[texts]The Sokal Hoax - Morten Tolboll
The Sokal Hoax, also known as the Sokal Affair, was a publishing hoax perpetrated by Alan Sokal, a physics professor at New York University. The hoax was a so-called hoax of exposure. Hoaxes of exposure are semi-comical or private sting operations. They usually encourage people to act foolishly or credulously by falling for patent nonsense that the hoaxer deliberately presents as reality. The Sokal Hoax was a pseudoscientific experiment to test the standards of scholarship and intellectual respo...
